| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Spend some Saturday time hanging with the Smith Westerns in the studio toward the end of recording their sophomore album "Dye It Blonde" -- in this short promo film (about 10 minutes) called "Die With Your Chin Up," from New York director Ray Concepcion ...

In concert: The Smith Westerns are back home May 11 at Lincoln Hall.

The Chicago rock band is popular on that side of the lens lately. The Smith Westerns also appear in a new documentary about the latest generation of garage rockers, "New Garage Explosion!!: In Love With the Times" ...

Other bands featured include Jay Reatard, the Black Lips, the Dirtbombs, Thee Oh Sees, Vivian Girls and more.

A free screening of the film happens at 7 p.m. April 20 at the Century Centre Cinema, 2828 N. Clark, followed by a Q&A with Jack Oblivian (the Oblivians) and Mick Collins (the Dirtbombs).

Or, heck, watch it here ...
